APPLICATION OF HIGH SPEED PANNING ON THE TECHNICAL ANALYSIS OF POLE VAULT
Keywords: high speed panning, pole vault, takeoff technique
AbstractINTRODUCTION: The pole vault is an event with the characteristics of a complicated technical movement and a large motion space. Generally, its field of view needs a near 10m horizontal shooting scope and an above 6m vertical shooting scope. The factors such as the edge distortion should be also considered. If the fixed photography of 16mm high-speed camera is used, the image formation is too small to read photographic images. Therefore, the high speed panning of a 35mm camera has been used to record the performance of an elite Chinese pole-vault athlete. On the basis of the shooting film of his movement in competitions, a biomechanical analysis and diagnosis have been made in order to put forward constructive suggestions for the coach and athlete to assist with specific training to improve technique.
